Aqix team

Dr Douglas Rees is the Founder, Director and Chief Scientific Officer of Aqix Ltd. Many years of research led him to invent the means of keeping animal and human organs alive outside of the body which culminated in the patented design of the Res-Del® Isolated Tissue/Organ Perfusion System (1980) and the development of the AQIX® RS-I Preservation and Perfusion medium, which he went on to successfully patent (2000) and manufacture. In COPE, Doug is providing his extensive knowledge to the experimental work programmes on liver and kidney preservation.

This project has received funding from the European Union's 7th Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement 305934.
